"Ben is thorough, inquisitive, to the point, and a problem solver. His role as Vice President of Legal Affairs for Marsh Supermarkets covered a wide variety of subject matter, and he was very focused on providing the appropriate legal research and outside advise as needed. He is clear, concise and to the point. His legal analysis is thorough, and he always provides a well researched opinion. He participated as a member of the executive leadership committee, and was a highly contributing partner to the CEO and myself. Given the opportunity, I would welcome the chance to work with him again."

"I’ve known Ben for approximately 10 years while we both worked as in-house counsel at divisions of United Technologies Corporation (UTC). All of my experiences working with Ben have been extremely positive. As a peer, Ben is extremely collaborative and generous with his time - even when he is in the midst of juggling many competing obligations. When Ben reported to me, I had the opportunity to observe Ben’s attention to client needs and practical approach to the law. Ben does a tremendous job balancing in-depth analytical lawyering with practical, client-focused solutions. Ben is very responsive to client needs and ensures that key stakeholders are aware of important changes / milestones. Ben has an upbeat and easy communication style that encourages clients to engage with him. Ben’s communication style and tremendous skills as a lawyer leads him to be highly sought-after by clients and his fellow lawyers, alike. I know many of the business clients who Ben has supported at UTC and the feedback that they have provided is consistently very positive. Clients consider Ben a key business partner, not simply their lawyer. I would not hesitate to refer clients to Ben."
